The B716 was a semi-urban B-road in north Lanarkshire.

The road started on the B766 in Croftfoot and headed east along Croftfoot Road and Blairbeth Road (which is now the A730) into Burnside. Here it zigzagged under the railway line on a short multiplex along the A749 before it followed the railway line eastwards along Brownside Road. At the far end it met the B759 and bore left into Greenlees Road to go over a second railway line and reach the A724 Cambuslang Main Street.

There was a multiplex east along the A724 before the B716 regained its number by turning left into Westburn Road. After going through Westburn itself the road crossed the railway line in Newton before crossing the Rotten Calder (a river) to end on the B758.

The B716 was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932. The road lasted until at least the 1970s but has since been downgraded, with a few sections of the ex-B716 having been taken over by surrounding roads.
